He was born to George Peter Victor and Lillian Mahi’ai Kuwehu Victor on June 18, 1935, in Honolulu, Territory of Hawai’i. After graduating from Kaimuki High School in 1953, Lincoln volunteered for combat service in Korea and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He joined other sons of Hawai’i as they formed the only Provisional Hawaiian Infantry Company (in the history of the Marine Corps) for the 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Brigade, 1st Marine Division, Fleet Marine Force. During his combat tour in Korea, he served as a rifleman, BAR gunner, and upon his promotion to Sergeant (E-4), he lead a .30 caliber machine gun team. After a year in Korea, he returned to the United States and was hand-selected to close his service with the Marine Corps as a military policeman at the Marine Corps 1st Battalion Supply Depot at Barstow, California. Lincoln was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 1957. In 2010, he joined other Korean War Veterans and returned to South Korea to attend the 60th Commitment and Friendship observation sponsored by the South Korean Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs. Lincoln worked a number of different jobs – truck driver with Delivery Service, Inc., armed guard with Burns International Security, four years as an armed courier with Honolulu Armored Car Company, meat cutter from 1964 to 1978 (as a member of the Amalgamated Meatcutters’ Union of North America) with Food Pantry (Waikiki), Star Market, Times, and Holiday Mart – before he found his calling as a State Law Enforcement Officer (SLEO) in 1979. He worked in the Executive Protection Unit from 1980 to 1990 and was a driver/bodyguard for Governors George Ariyoshi and John Waihe’e, as well as their families. Later in his law enforcement career the SLEO merged with the Department of Public Safety, Sheriff’s Division and he stood watch as a Deputy Sheriff at the State Capitol. In 1995, he became the acting Sergeant in charge of the uniformed officers at Washington Place. Lincoln also served as a member of the Sheriff’s Special Operations Group (SOG). He retired in 2000 after a career of 26 years. Lincoln enjoyed skydiving and was a member of Aloha Skydivers in the 1960s. He was an active member of the Wai’anae Jaycees from 1964 to 1985 when he “roostered out” at age 50. He later became a member of the Hui Hau’oli club, which consisted of friends from the Jaycees. He was also a member of VFW HI Post 849 in Wai’anae. Lincoln was instrumental in helping to bring the wide ranging Victor families together and organizing biennial Victor ‘Ohana reunions. His love and devotion to his wife was constant. Upon his retirement in 2000, his personal mission was to chauffeur and escort his wife to all of her visitations as a mentor for DOE vice-principals in training and student teachers in the University of Phoenix. He enjoyed traveling and embarked on a series of adventurous cross country trips with his wife. Their goal was to visit every state. A trip planned for this summer would have gotten them 3/4 of the way to their goal. Married for 53 years Lincoln was a caring and loving husband, father, and grandfather. He is survived by his wife Linda M. Victor; sons Mark L. Victor (Jessica), Dwight P. Victor (Diane), Chad E. Victor (Gabrial), and daughter Karen L.

Posted On June 9th, 2013 -

FAIASO CECILIA DALE TITI HANNEMANN
Faiaso Cecilia Dale Titi Hannemann passed away peacefully on June 2, 2013 at Pali Momi Medical Center at the age of 72. Titi, as she was known to her family and friends, was the eldest daughter of the late Gustav and Faiaso Soliai Hannemann. She was born in Fasito’o, Western Samoa on November 29, 1940. When her family emigrated to Hawaii in 1953, Titi attended public schools and was a proud ’59 graduate of Farrington High School. Because she was determined to help her parents and her family, she sought employment right out of high school and worked throughout her adult life, developing a reputation for being a tireless and dedicated worker, like her father. She grew up in an LDS household and faithfully served in many callings and positions in her church. Family and honoring one’s parents were of paramount importance to Titi. Her favorite Biblical scripture was,” Honor thy father and thy mother…” (Exodus 20: 12) In fact, she dutifully took care of her dad for several years after her mother passed away in 1973. She inherited her mom’s talent as an excellent cook and baker and enjoyed making her loved ones happy with her culinary skills. She also had a deep affinity for her Samoan culture as she was extremely well versed in the customs and traditions of the Fa’a Samoa, which pleased her parents and her maternal grandfather, the late Paramount Chief Pinemua Muliufi Soliai. At many functions, Titi would be asked to perform a beautiful siva that was always a big hit with the audience. The loves of her life were her daughter Ata and her granddaughter Titinia Billie. She was totally consumed with their welfare and well-being and had high hopes for them. Titi was also an active and passionate supporter of her siblings and her nieces and nephews’ activities. Known as the “rock” of her family, Titi could always be counted on to be there to cheer them on at a sporting event, church or cultural activity, school or community function and political campaigns. Her physical challenges did not prevent her from contributing to these special and precious moments. And if you were lucky, she would show up with her popular homemade delicacies that would make everyone happy. Bringing love, joy and support to our lives is what we will miss about her. Manui’a Lou Malaga Titi! Funeral services are set for Tuesday, June 11 at Honolulu Hawaii West Stake Center at 1723 Beckley St in Kalihi. Viewing is at 8:30 am with the service to follow at 10 am. Burial will take place at Laie Cemetery at 2:30 pm where she will be laid to rest next to her father Gustav.”

MILDRED SACHIYE YAMAGUCHI Dec 2, 1920 – Jun 2, 2013 Mildred Sachiye Yamaguchi passed away surrounded by her loving family on June 2 in San Francisco. At age 92, she succumbed to complications of a stroke suffered six months ago. Mildred was born Sachiye Ohta in 1920, the oldest of five children of immigrant parents, Aka and Yutaka Ohta, in Kauai, HI. She grew up in Honolulu. After graduating from McKinley High School she went to Tokyo to continue her education. During the war Mildred was unable to leave the country or contact her family. She found herself trapped in relentless bombing raids, living off the kindness of local residents, and always fearful of being found a U.S. citizen. At war’s end her brother Herbert, a member of the U.S. Army, came to Tokyo and located her on behalf of the family. Mildred had managed to find a job in which her bi-lingualism was a prime asset in the post-war setting. During this time, she met George Soichi Yamaguchi, who came to Tokyo as a member U.S. Army Intelligence. With all of the dislocation and uncertainty of a world war behind them, Mildred and George married and finally settled in San Francisco where they started their family. George predeceased Mildred in 2006 after 57 years of marriage. Mildred loved to travel, enjoy Bay Area sports, and play the occasional game of blackjack – for which she had an uncanny knack for winning. Above all, family and a positive attitude were always her overarching priorities. Grieving her loss are Mildred’s five dedicated children: Michael (Pam), Ken, Ann, Jean (Richard), and Jon (Peri). Mildred is predeceased by her oldest daughter Karen. Mildred will also be deeply missed by her grandchildren: Nicholas, Anthony, Rachel, Riley, Ryan and Emily. She is also survived by siblings Herbert, Dorothy, Lillian, and Janet. Friends may visit after 4 PM and are invited to attend the Rosary at 5PM Thursday, June 6 at the Evergreen Mortuary of McAvoy O’Hara, 10th Ave at Geary Blvd. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated 11AM Friday, June 7 at St. Cecilia Church, 2555 17th Ave., San Francisco. Interment to follow at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma.
